Physical Appearance

In appearance Will is almost completely ordinary. He is short and stocky, with slightly long mouse-brown hair that continually falls into his eyes. His eyes are grey, with an odd look of oldness to them. Will's face is round and good-natured, but he maintains a solemn or stoic expression most of the time.

Just above his right wrist, on the inside of his arm, Will has a single unusual scar. It looks like a shiny hairless burn scar, but is in the shape of a perfect circle quartered by a cross.


Mental Presence

But to those characters who have the ability to sense the supernatural, it will be obvious that Will is not so human after all. He is an Old One of the Light, and that is not only a title. Although he was born as a human and once believed himself to be only a human child, Will was also created out of one of the two primary elemental forces of his universe. Forces which, in the hierarchy of WIll's universe, lie directly beneath the power responsible for maintaining the operation of the universe.

What the Light is... well at one point a human character says this about it. But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun. ... At the centre of the Light there is a cold white flame, just as at the centre of the Dark there is a great black pit bottomless as the Universe.


Other Permissions

Will has a certain ability to tell whether someone is human or not. And more specifically, whether someone belongs to the Light or the Dark. That last won't be coming into play here, as the concept of Light and Dark in his canon doesn't really match up with any other canon's concept of Light and Dark powers.

Time

Will is unaffected by time paradoxes. He can walk in and out of different times as he wills, and if he walks into a new time everyone there will remember him as always having been there. He can have visions of the past as well, either by walking into a time bubble or by touching an object and willing himself to see its history. He can stop time for the people around him or put a single person outside of
time for a moment.

Mind

Will is telepathic only with other Old Ones and similar magical beings. He is forbidden from manipulating the minds of humans unless it is necessary to remove their memories or shield their minds for protection. He has an excellent memory. Additionally he has some
ability with mental combat. He can sense the presence of other agents of the Light and Dark. He can also sense malevolent intentions.


Naturally, most of these will be tough to play out in game without some permissions. So please answer the following questions to help me out.


Is it okay for him to simply know whether your character is human or not?

Does your character have telepathic abilities? If so, are you willing to have them contacted in this way?

Is there any plotting you would like to do with any of his abilities?

Is it okay for him to simply know whether your character is human or not? All good by me. Five is pretty open about his non-human status to most when he thinks it won't immediately cause complications and with knowing what he does of Will already, this is all good.

Does your character have telepathic abilities? If so, are you willing to have them contacted in this way? Yes and yes. Feel free to have Will ping his jedi-senses. Crap, wrong fandom. ;)

Is there any plotting you would like to do with any of his abilities? Yes! Because time-bendy-paradoxy talk and stuff I need practise in. I'm totally open to some plotting and stuff to do with Will. :)

All of the above are perfectly fine. I think Will and Galadriel probably are pretty set, but you know you can ping me if you ever have any plotty ideas about his powers.

Yes - Although Sion is a bit odd about "not being human". Long story short, on one plane, "Human" is literally a giant spell, and Sion is the "counter spell", Human alpha. However in the plane where Human actually exists, they all pretty much are humans with humany things - except Sion is currently a tiny bit different.

Does your character have telepathic abilities? If so, are you willing to have them contacted in this way?
When Asruld speaks, there's a fifty percent chance its really weird "voice from above" mixed with "in your head", rather than through Sion's mouth. Will would probably be able to contact Asruld, who may or may not relay anything to Sion.

Anna is called a "Strain", or basically someone who has gotten powers not from the Slate. This doesn't seem to be anything that changes whether she's human or not.

On the other hand, she is also now the Red King, and while the castle diminished her powers, she... more or less has a volcano's worth of fire inside.

Anna doesn't actually have telepathy! She can read minds, so its likely that she can pick up just fine, but she bottles down her abilities so much that if she can sends anything, it won't be just thoughts.


As for plotting, cute creepy kids, clearly.
